Does anyone know what colour scheme would have been used for HMS Fox in 1914, at the time she was involved in the Battle of Tanga? I would like to paint a model of her.

Thanks

Robert

Hi Robert,

Your best bet is probably to try Steel Navy.com. Post your question on their message board and they might be of help. They also have a seperate Ship Camouflage forum and you could try posting on that (the posts have a longer life on that one).

Cheers.

Hi again Robert,

Any luck? I see there's been no response on Steel Navy. I think you would be better posting on the camouflage site where the messages lie for a long time. You might wait a while, but maybe you'll get an answer.

The site is:

Good luck.

If its any help I'm sure the standard grey used by the Royal Navy in WWI was considerably darker than WWII.
